On March 5. the Ministry of Health published the eight truths about e-cigarettes, which were reprinted on the official website of the British government. It can be seen as a powerful refutation of the most widely spread rumors and prejudices in the e-cigarettes industry by the official agencies of the government.
What is rumor?
Due to the imbalance of information and the inertia of obtaining information, people are often keen to believe in conspiracy theory and gossip information from unofficial channels, lacking the exploration and verification of authoritative information.
The so-called "three men become tigers", rumors and conspiracy theories will become ferocious after being spread for many times.
Rumor a mouth, refute rumor run off leg.
For example, last year's e-atomized lung disease in the United States, Mingming's final investigation concluded that it was caused by thc sesame oil containing vitamin E in the street black market, but some media and people who did not understand the industry put the accusation on the electronic cigarette butts, so that people were misled, and talking about it was described as e-cigarette death.
This has nothing to do with what we usually call nicotine e-cigarettes.
The novel coronavirus pneumonia is a conspiracy theory of new crown pneumonia recently. Many poker faced eyeball analysis has made many people believe that there is a relationship between them.
Although people will think that this is the electronic cigarette back pan, which is good for the industry, we still insist that the electronic cigarette back pan can not rely on the wrong information to throw the pan, but should know the electronic cigarette through the right information.
Because, believe in conspiracy theory and do not think about this wave of people, is likely to be the wave of people who yesterday forwarded e-cigarettes to death.
What is prejudice?
Prejudice is people's subjective view and one-sided inference of things. It is hard to change or don't want to change their cognitive defects to speculate and speculate on a person or thing from the perspective of self.
Prejudice is a disease more terrible than ignorance.
Prejudice sometimes kills, and with it you will never see the truth.
Prejudice, in the final analysis, is a kind of thinking inertia, a simple and crude attribution.

1. Nicotine e-cigarettes have nothing to do with last year's US lung disease outbreak
In August last year, 68 people died of mysterious lung disease in various parts of the United States. It was later found that the culprit was vitamin E acetate, an illegal additive in the "poor" electronic atomization products of cannabis. Nicotine e-cigarettes do not contain this substance. However, in response to the outbreak of lung disease, regulators around the world began to ban nicotine e-cigarettes, which greatly hindered the conversion of cigarette users to e-cigarettes.
2. Using electronic cigarette can significantly improve blood vessel health
The results of a randomized controlled trial in December 2019 in the UK are encouraging: after smokers completely switched to electronic cigarettes, their vascular health improved significantly, almost the same as that of healthy people.

An independent report from the UK's Department of public health shows that although e-cigarettes are not 100% safe, the quality of harmful chemicals in e-cigarettes is almost negligible.
